If you are planning a relocation to this particular county, might we suggest the Stan Bolt-designed contemporary modernist property in Maidencombe, Devon? Of course, if your budget allows, that is.
An incredibly stylish property (and an award winning one too), this eye-catching house sits in a plot of 1.5 acres, with rural views over Dartmoor to one side and coastal views on the other. Which sounds pretty much perfect to us.
The house is approached via a short driveway and passes through a parking area and by a double car port and studio building also designed by the architect.
Once in, you’ll find a slate-floored hallway leading to a double-height dining area. Off that you’ll find a small study area and the kitchen, the latter with the option to be ‘screened off’ with a sliding door or kept open plan with the living area. There is also a utility room and WC off the kitchen. Also found on the ground floor are three bedrooms (one currently used as a home office) and a bathroom.
Head up the stairs and you’ll find the main living room, with sea views to the front and countryside to the rear. From that, you can perhaps gather that this is a bright, large and open space, complete with an open fire and a ‘bridge’ that leads from the living room, over the dining room below and onto the first floor balcony.
Also on the higher level is the master bedroom suite with shower room and freestanding bath in the bedroom.
Outside space includes lawn to the front, plus decking, general garden, vegetable plots, herb garden, potting sheds, greenhouses, a treehouse, orchard, chicken run and a pasture. So no shortage of outdoors hobbies there!
£850,000 is the asking price.
